The Nearness of God

But for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made Adonai ELOHIM my refuge, so that I can tell of all of your works. Psalm 73:28 (Complete Jewish Bible)

God calls each of us to proclaim His love. Some are called to their neighbors, some to nations. But whether to neighbors or nations, we can’t fulfill this aspect of Christianity without the nearness of God.

We must have His Spirit. We must have His strength, and we must have His refuge to protect us from the fiery darts of the enemy. God is no respecter of persons. If He gave refuge to the Psalmist when he drew near to Him, God will do the same for us.
May you be encouraged to trust Adonai ELOHIM enough to drop whatever you are doing this morning (or whenever you read this post) and close our eyes, take a deep breath, and picture in your mind drawing near to the Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit. The three in one. He is All Encompassing, All Knowing, All Powerful.
Curl up under His tent today and find refuge. Call out to Adonai ELOHIM! He doesn’t care how you pronounce it. He is just waiting for you to cry out His name so He can reveal Himself to you and empower you to proclaim His love to a neighbor or a nation.
He is near. This is good.
Prayer: Oh come near to us Adonai ELOHIM! We sit in silence today waiting…waiting. Will we find you in the silence or will you lead us to a song, a Psalm, a Scripture from Your Book? Your Book is Your conversation, Your dialogue with man. Open our ears to hear Your leading. Your direction. Your heartbeat. Thank you for being here. Amen.

Much love,

andy
